I'm interested to see how this match turns out. While the '59 set gets a fair amount of attention, the '66 set is one that really intrigues me. FYI, the Grant Jackson RC in 1966 Topps books for more than the Palmer and Sutton cards, but I didn't include it as a key RC because it is short printed.
Tale of the tape:
- Set Size: 1959 has 572 cards. 1966 has 598 cards
- Key RCs: 1959 Bob Gibson, Norm Cash 1966 Jim Palmer, Don Sutton
- Cost of complete set in NM condition: 1959 $8000 1966 $4000
- Number of cards with high book at $100 or more: 1959: 14 (includes Mantle $1K) 1966: 12
The '59 Topps blog was recently wrapped up by Commish Bob, while the '66 Topps blog is written by Jim from Downingtown, and is still going strong.
I appreciate the support I've received so far; 19 votes last week was pretty good. I'd like to hit at least 20 a week if possible, so get the word out if you can.
Thanks for reading, Robert
